a feel it feel like it's hard to say how many people have fled climate towards the city that's been the target of kiev's new jubilation for months even when the army raised the ukrainian flag over the town the refugees kept telling me. that. this is really for the war looks good to you. but i thought there's good thing you don't think. but it. was a. local that again years ago why do. you want to come back. to the not many of those who have fled from where forced to meet their relatives

with attract unnecessary attention. will continue the journey alone it used to be a crane and checkpoint but as you can see now it's abandoned there is absolutely nobody here because crawls freely as you can see the ukrainian border guards left the russian side of the checkpoint seventy or no more than at the ukrainian russian border people here crossed day and night you can see there are many of them running from. bolland see their model and this is one of the few places along the east front year where there are no clashes but people are jittery fighting could break out here is well at any moment thought with a click of the to but the minute you leave the most abortion. the border and the safety beyond it is now just steps away with just one or even if these people will be able to go home is far from clear. proof notion auti in
eastern ukraine. where he is also active on her twitter account away she is publishing pictures and reports of washing counters while in eastern ukraine feel free to follow her they. cut. right to see. her straight. and i would think the church. on our reporters were there. in spirit i. believe. in the touch. fears protests assumed to show no sign of easing in the palestinian cities with more reports of israeli police being brutally fueling the flames more people are calling for revenge against israel after the continuous crackdown of the security
forces on gaza in the latest show of violence a fifteen year old palestinian boy was severely beaten by police officers he is a cousin of a palestinian teen abducted and burned alive last week in jerusalem israeli police have already arrested six jewish suspects over the murder it's thought the young star of the youngster was slaughtered in revenge for the killing of three jewish teenagers which israel things on some us policy i managed to catch up with a young victim of the police outrage. to deal with the loss to see his cousin muhammad naive i said hi to him before he died ten minutes before he died he was like you're all right i was are driving by i told him so i said i turned and he didn't answer right you back ten minutes later and then he got kidnapped and tonics truman did not in do such moments funeral he was arrested and
brutally beaten up by israeli soldiers i was actually standing there watching the protest while i heard some people screaming from the left side of me i heard some people screaming was not a me and the word came and my number two or three soldiers so there was our friends in front of me start trying to jump their friends their problem my face and the soldiers make a my mind we became your instrument on the floor. pointing in the face and one counters are you know we're going to mars or his mother says the soldiers intention was clear if you want to take somebody do you have to beat them up like this. everyone they take baby but not i mean i've never seen anybody to this extent the beating to kill you know it's like attempted murder. it's not the first time the i.d.f. has faced this kind of criticism we've documented many cases where palestinian youths were beaten by border police and by the army it's rare for these attacks to
be filmed but it's not rare for them to happen it's in him has on its books hundreds of cases of the security forces using violence against palestinians but most were closed without any measures being taken against the soldiers or police involved these really police say the footage of target being beaten up was heavily edited and altered and does not represent events accurately nonetheless tensions between the two sides continue to simmer and many fear it's only a matter of time before an already tense region will be pushed over the edge policy r t jerusalem. a senior advisor for the palestinians the biggest political party who some somlata believes israel uses every chance they can to further terrorize the region and keep it for granted because it is that of military occupation of a country against. people and civilians because of sweeping coma's a sion it's very clear that israel has exploited this incident to really politicize
the event in a way to reveal its real intentions its real intentions. to block the emergence of a palestinian state is to make sure that gaza will never come back to the west bank and palestinians will remain for fragmented have you heard any word that there is a state that will simply keep an entire nation list seizure on communities because there are investigations and allegations so this whole collective punishment approach that israel has been using has to stop. as a pillar of economic development of gold has seen wars are fought over it and it has been at the epicenter of one of the most serious diplomatic conflicts between germany and the u.s. after barry lynn failed to repatriate or at least ordered its precious metal reserves stored in new york artie's peed all over has a story. there was a time when taking gold out of the u.s. federal reserve was only for hollywood to suggest.
and bruce willis to stop because of the financial crisis in europe soared germany decided it wanted to bring home a significant chunk of the precious metal from the united states despite the aim to ship three hundred tons to frankfurt by twenty twenty so far they've only managed to bring back just over ten percent of the. cordova americans have taken good care of gold we have no reason for mistrust which is to. say critics of the slow progress the six hundred thirty five billion dollars of gold in u.s. faults has never been fully inspected by germany on. why we haven't been allowed to spread this escapes me i'm no conspiracy theories but the blunders bank should be able to audit the gold once a year like it does with the reserves in frankfurt. the lack of inspection has led some to question if it's still there even after at least one dk to ask him when
this bank and the fact that there is still no shred of evidence that the german gold is untouched in the new york more we're still missing person who published go far number lists even though the us the federal reserve does publish these lists for their own gold germany has the world's second largest gold reserves worth one hundred and forty one billion dollars currently forty five percent of that is stored in new york thirteen percent in london eleven percent in paris although the three hundred seventy four tons in france is set to be all returned to germany the rest is in the bond buying vaults in frankfurt anyone questioning the safety of the gold reserves being left office conspiracy theorists by those in charge they say it's solid financial manager. didn't the bundesbank maintain that their plan is on track however they do face a potential logistical headache as they try and return almost seven hundred tons of
gold from new york in paris but he had to germany safe and sound by the twenty twenty deadline peter all of a policy. let's take a look at here this is new york city well quarter of the world's existing reserves is locked up let's put it all in perspective for you another result think you'd some think flowers in the seven hundred tons of gold belonging to sixty countries that make up to ninety eight percent of all precious metals kept in the treasury as only two percent of the gold in the vault is owned by washington and the international monetary fund economic analyst michael ross the things that this gives the u.s. a crucial diplomatic many place until in my opinion seems to tell like to control us all even blick mail us if you have to gold you tell me what to do so it opens many questions also when it comes to the real serenity of germany also
when it comes to all those scandals at the half for example it is a surveillance a surveillance things here in germany it's only a symbol and ridiculous c o two in my opinion it is to make the public come budget it's not really an effort to take back the goat. coming up with you later on archie what's happened to the hard work ethics of the brits now they're not known out for taking siestas and yet reports show british workers are less productive than their european neighbors so we'll tell you more on the story in a few minutes. and how tough do you have to be to drive on the streets of moscow stay with us as we report on how city authorities have for the first time passed and i bless of driving bail and at punishing the city's road rage is.
well told me my language a lovely react to situations i have read the reports for so i'm like you know i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point. which is to carry every car is on your dog no gun. thank you no more weasel words. when you need a direct question be prepared for a change when you when you should be ready for a. prism of speech and a little down to freedom to watch. speak
welcome back this is our t. international the relentless iraqi offensive all militants from a group formerly known as isis has a broad new terror to the war torn region and apparently in his very first video message the elusive leader of the radicals called all muslims to pledge allegiance to him it was the rest as not all at all well received there was one detail that you had attention away from his talks of doomsday and how the haze of none be both there was his watch that is such a way you pleasure resembled an expensive mega a rolex that could be worth the dozens of dollars the pictures were immediately ridiculed prompting confusion even among his father was. for centuries they have been the driving force behind their country's economic success but now instead of employers are singing their praises british workers are being criticized for being lazy but how could how could they be accused and how could
they feel this way well polly boyko found out. the great british work force one that gave birth to an industrial revolution helped build an empire and brought the world the railways the telephone the jet engine and the t.v. brits may insist they still work their fingers to the bone but that actually found to be less productive than in countries like the us germany and even those old rivals france and the former conservative deputy prime minister lord has all time says he knows why for the veteran heavyweights great stone get up early enough they aren't ambitious enough and they simply don't work hard enough tough as it was to steel myself from an afternoon down the pop i bucked myself up to ask the successful entrepreneur where they he agrees that brits are just lazy unfortunately you know we have situations where they come in for interviews they've got no issues as i'm sure not on choice but scruffy that's what we want we have
a lot of people climbing beneficial people that want to go work you know which is a fiction economy and obviously it's allowing us to bring in a lot of foreigners i'm employing i mean actual facts you know i mean i want to be sure i am but it's a fact about ten percent of charlie's two hundred staff and now foreign and that figure is likely to grow because he says they simply pull their weight but try telling that to london's office workers who are quite frankly insulted what you say you don't think brits are lazy absolutely no more not the working for example they work too many hours maybe compared to the coaches we have more of a work life balance but it will not necessarily a bad thing. but now i would say when they see what we do work quite hard just because europeans i was here have already done part of the summer holidays and they take time out also take time off in the office to me yeah it was
a lot of them to be in the office right now where. slughorn. and yet british workers produce about a fifth less for every hour worked than any of the leading g seven nation even celebrity employers like madonna accuse the brits of indolence top chef jamie oliver has said that his restaurants would close if there weren't any european immigrants to work in them but charlie mullins the work ethic starts at school i believe if we can work more trucks. we're going to get a lot more people a lot more bricks in the workplace and we need to start this a school level you know we need to go into schools. for actions or work or food fortunately you know we're short the consequence according to the international monetary fund this month is that slack staff pose a major risk to britain's future economic health but if that's not enough to get brits off the couch perhaps charlie's an example of just how far good old fashioned
british hard graft can get you. know r.t. london. and taking a look at what we have on line for you now one hundred children to receive the best education while easier said than done as a soaring fees of british boarding schools we know educating one child alone can cost around half a million pounds head to our web site to find out more. and be sure not to forget to charge your phone as it could soon be confiscated before boarding a u.s. bound flight to find out why the u.s. transportation security administration is increasing security measures head to our dot com. having anger management troubles well that's certainly true for most could drive as many of them have been caught on camera while in the attacking other traffic. reports. unfortunately they sort of see is going to come in in russia so common in fact will make his have recently and for
the first time will be introduced an aggressive driving bail hearing punishing those used as vehicles to intimidate or harass other road users campaigners say it's a step in the right direction however they still have concerns. legislation is all rationally getting tougher in russia but it forced me to just isn't in the place it was to have a long way to go before we learned to implement you know it's how do you control its enforcement how do you make sure it will not be abused as a gravy train by all the dirty cops that times central moscow resembles a car park rather than a road network stationary traffic from bumper to bumper as far as the eye can see even while speaking to me tree examples of road rage where i think. there are many ways in which aggressive driving manifest itself driving too close to the car in front impatiently flashing your lights or sounding your horn and skipping a red light are just some examples and on occasions these displays of frustration
and to violence. somebody who always carries weapons in the car usually does this because he or she has self-defense on their mind so we can assume such people have a lot of the grace of the fear the stronger the desire to attack in other words the road rage is caused by thir panic and insecurity so how common is aggressive driving we are some drivers caught in the moscow russia. road rage is all around men show no respect for female drivers fines this is what can happen i can see no other way that i guess is inevitable on the road it doesn't go as far as to killing somebody and that fights do take place i was a witness to one and yes sure men do it especially often can you recall something particularly unpleasant given the middle finger. did you respond page of the city. so why do people become so aggressive behind the wheel with such
people are probably prone to mood swings and on able to control themselves so road rage is just one manifestation of this disorder it's just that the car gives you an illusion of a safer place to be the decision to pass the aggressive driving bill shows your thirty's are keen to be seen to be addressing the issue but with a maximum fine of five thousand roubles around one hundred fifty dollars there's a concern the deterrent isn't strong enough being seems like this could be seen for some time to come to moscow. why to more international news in brief and now australia has joined the ranks of countries protesting against austerity policies imposed by its government mass demonstrations have sparked from mauretania city across the country against the prime minister's austerity budget that includes health and welfare cuts according to the organizers of the rally in sydney up to fifteen thousand people gathered in the central business district
